A timeless, classic sans with an early grotesk aesthetic. It's neutral tone and balanced proportions allow it to be equipped for a variety of applications.

Inspired by the typographic and architectural styles present in early 20th century New York, where both JWT and Wunderman were founded.

Bespoke typefaces

Tone of voice, personality and appearance amongst other factors, are all important roles in the design of visual language. Design of a typeface is as unique as accent is to a region, this is why we encourage clients to explore the boundaries of their brand — by broadening their visual aesthetic in order to communicate their proposition and values effectively.

Ways of thinking

We are a type foundry with strong beliefs in traditional design principles, and we fuse these with our modern interpretations of the design world. Since our space is ever-changing, we aim to stay relevant to our community by offering timeless and quality products as opposed to short-lived trends and gimmicks. We work through the notion of problem solving and truth seeking — where an original idea can be born through research in time, space, place and cause.
